Whether your family is growing, renting out a room in your property, or simply want a new study or office, a loft conversion is an ideal solution to maximise space in your house.

No matter the project size, we will build you a loft that reflects your style and meets your lifestyle’s needs.
A loft conversion is a process of extending the roof and making changes to the ceiling to make it inhabitable. This converted loft can be used for anything, it can be made into an additional bedroom, a gaming area, an indoor study, etc.
Getting a loft conversion is the smartest decision because sometimes, constructing an additional story or a dedicated basement can be too expensive. There are a lot of factors that have to be considered before getting a loft conversion and most importantly they should support a loft conversion. If the ceiling and the walls are too weak, a loft conversion cannot be done.
Getting a loft conversion is advised because not only is it a cost-effective solution to add additional space but it is also an investment that will increase the value of the house by at least 20%. All the money invested in the loft conversion can be made back while selling the house and with the invested money there is also a 20% profit. Apart from increasing the value of the house, getting a loft conversion is suggested because other alternatives for increasing living space are complicated or too expensive.
The next best option to enjoy additional living space is to move out and look for a new house, this is a time-consuming process because there are a lot of things that have to be researched and looked into before moving into a new house. You might find the perfect house but there are always small things like improper ventilation, high maintenance costs, no parking space, etc that can be the reason for you to choose not to move to a new place.
When you are planning to get a loft conversion, you should be extremely careful while selecting the type and plans for your loft conversion. Not all houses can support a particular style of loft conversion and if the loft is constructed even if the house doesn't complement it, there is a risk for the ceiling to collapse.
These planning permissions can be obtained from the local planning authorities and they will check the strength of the structure and check if the house will complement loft conversion. We at loft conversion London will help you by providing only legitimate plans that will most likely be allowed by the regulatory authorities. Getting these plans examined by the regulatory authorities can take too much time but when you do business with us, our team of experts work to get the permissions as soon as possible.

Our experts make sure that the house doesn't look odd or doesn't stand out from all the other houses in a bad way once the loft conversion is done.
The interior of the house matters just as much as the exterior of the house. Not all contractors take the exterior of the house seriously and develop plans only while considering the client's demands for the interior. In the end, the client gets all that he wants from the interior but the house looks too off from the outside.
Our developers make sure that the exterior is just as perfect as the interior and they use modern styles and techniques to make sure that the loft conversion seems natural and looks like the crown on a queen's head.

When you hire other contractors to work on the loft conversion, they might ask you to move to a different location while the work is happening. This is very common and most of the clients shift to a hotel or rent a different house till the loft conversion is finished.

The most common loft conversions are done on these types of houses across London. These houses mostly have high ceilings and large rooms and a conversion works best when the design retains the natural character of the building.
If you live in an end of terraced or semi-detached house, your property is ideal for a loft conversion. There are two main types of loft conversion that are suitable for semi-detached and end of terrace homes: hip to gable loft conversions and dormer loft conversions.
Many properties in the UK were build in the 1920s or 1930s (pre-war period). Such houses are great for loft conversions, you can easily add either a dormer loft conversion, a hip to gable loft conversion or a Velux loft conversion. The type we build will depend on the structure of your home and roof we can guide you on the best approach.
If you happen to live in a conservation area, the local council may not permit you to have a rear dormer, but they might let you have a mansard or a combination of Velux roof windows and small dormers. Loft conversions in flats and Maisonettes are the ultimate way of gaining that precious extra space.
